  • Bank Of America: Don't Over-Analyze Results [View article]
    Do you really expect competent government, DW, when this oh so wonderful thing called democracy allows idiots to vote?

  • Bank Of America: Don't Over-Analyze Results [View article]
    Oooh; look at that: a flying pig! Recent history shows that, while stock price is (too) frequently used to "justify" pay rises, the reverse hardly ever happens.

  • BofA: Room for more cuts in compensation [View news story]
    After decades of being bombarded with propaganda about the "desirability" (?) of minimising labour costs, I do believe this is the first time I've seen a reference to (the increasingly extravagant) "compensation costs"! Why do they call it compensation, anyway; do they really think the poor dears would really rather be doing something else? The idea is every bit as daft as the notion that CEOs should be rewarded on the same scale as entrepreneurs!

  • BofA: Room for more cuts in compensation [View news story]
    You can't, YJ; the same people who collectively awarded themselves ever more ridiculous salaries, ratcheting them up at every drop of the hat, over recent decades, are hardly going to loosen up the control they've acquired! However much they may compete and squabble among themselves they will, nevertheless, like any regiment, close ranks when threatened with an outside enemy. This is how we ended up with such huge inequities.

    To be fair, Ic, he did take a pay cut recently, but only from a ridiculously high salary, to a slightly less ridiculously high salary. Why do you care about "industry standards" when all these people are being paid way more than any one person can really be worth?

    So what MWO? It's not as if he's short of cash, nor is anyone else who's found work as even a junior executive, in this age of ever more ridiculous top level salaries.

  • ALU hit with post-merger downgrades; NOK gets mixed reaction [View news story]
    They could do that with ALU's undersea cabling, too. If only Microsoft were interested in the latter...

  • ALU hit with post-merger downgrades; NOK gets mixed reaction [View news story]
    I think you're right Sep, and if the deal doesn't go through, then I'd expect both SPs to recover anyway, so there's plenty of upside to buying ALU. The puzzle is, why are so many bailing out? I think I need to know a lot more about what Nokia is planning...

  • Nokia And Alcatel-Lucent: What Will The Future Hold? [View article]
    A very important point which appears to have been overlooked is, that if Michel Combes had not convinced Nokia to buy the whole kit and caboodle, he would have been left running a much smaller company. What, I wonder, would this have done for his salary and stock options? At this stage, we can only speculate how he'll get on within Nokia, or even if he'll stay; don't be surprised if it turns out he's already accepted a better offer...

  • ALU hit with post-merger downgrades; NOK gets mixed reaction [View news story]
    So anyone who's confident Nokia's SP will grow with time, could consider that, if they buy ALU shares at this price, they are really buying Nokia at a discount? A good idea if it works out, but...

  • My Take On Bank Of America [View article]
    Isn't that what they've been doing, F? There must come a point when downsizing is detrimental to customer service, and that tends not to reflect on the bottom line until the loss of faith has become a major problem, of the sort that, sometimes, can never be rectified!

  • Bank Of America: The Inflection Point Has Arrived [View article]
    Really? As to the question in your bio, I did start 30 years ago, but it was a very different experience back then, which involved reading actual newspapers (remember them?) and calling at the bank to place ones instructions; boy how things have changed!
